Thriving in Chaos

Companies might proudly display their core values, but do they model them when chaos strikes? Hear how a company with a mission to center people in product development thrived during a global pandemic.

Building policies and practices that reinforce a company’s core values facilitates project and client success, while maintaining team morale and engagement. Learn tips for communication, collaboration, ethics, inclusivity, accessibility, and humanity that will help your team thrive.

This keynote is based upon my companies mission statement, which is "to facilitate connections between people in an ethical, accessible way, using technology when necessary." This is the third keynote I've written in the past year which explores various aspects of values-driven leadership as they relate to technology teams under stress. This is a topic I care deeply about, and one I've been both living and sharing.
